    What?

    Found it on Craigslist - Bold Copy

    I am afraid to even find out how this was even copied. Can anyone figure out what it could be? I would never buy this, but wow. Someone has balls.




    Listing
    Brand new blackberry bold copy, unlocked, ATT Tmobile

    This is a copy of blackberry bold, means that it has the same look, but not using the blackberry software, it has a similar software. Also, at the center of the phone, it's a button instead of the tracking ball.

    Worldwide international version, it works anywhere in the world

    plays movie, video, music, test message, SMS/MMS/EMS

    Daul sim version, it's may carry 2 lines in one phone, so you dont have to carry two phones.

    Package include:

    Brand new phone

    battery

    charger

    usb cable

    ear phone

    user's manual

    I want Daul sim, EMS and Test Messaging on my Bold. If you're going to hire people to manufacture a RIM knockoff, why wouldn't you invest in someone who can at least type correct Engrish.

    Wow. Definitely a chinese copy. I heard from my friend that china has blueberrys instead of blackberrys in china. This 2nd post may have proven my friend right.

    Hard to belive that china somewhat copies blackberrys and just renames them. Sorry for double post.

    Definitely a Chinese ripoff.

    My co-worker has an iPhone "copy" that is very badly done, both in appearance and functionality.

    So when is Redberry's copy slated for release? and, this "test messaging"...can it be used during all tests (like for answer exchanging, etc)?

    Test Messaging can be used in conjunction with EMS utilizing the Daul band processor. Once achieved, one can use d-mail and internut connection with ease.

    RIM can't touch them, I'm pretty sure. Selling it here is maybe another story but there is the whole overseas legal issue thing.

    Honestly though, let them have it. Most Chinese people cannot afford the real thing and this is perfect for them. In China, only rich business people and Westerners have BB's for the most part.

    If they find the aesthetics pleasing then maybe they will remember RIM when they one day get enough money for the real thing.
